Vincent van Gogh's more than 1,100 drawings remain comparatively unknown, although they are among his most ingenious and striking creations. He engaged drawing and painting in a rich dialogue, which enabled him to fully realise the creative potential of both means of expression.
Note: Where a drawing relates to a finished oil painting the painting is also shown.)

“Formal Analysis” = Language Metaphor
The formal qualities of a work can be describe with a language of art - without consideration of subject mater, content, meaning, biographical or historical context.

Elements = letters and words (individual components).

Principles = sentences and paragraphs (relationships) in compositions.

Elements of Art The basic building blocks found within a work of art. Line | Shape | Form (Volume-Mass) | Space & Depth | Light (Value) & Color | Texture | Pattern
Time | Motion

Principles of Design Describe the use of elements to create an overall work - and can be understood as relationships within a composition. Balance | Emphasis - Focal Point | Scale - Proportion | Repetition - Rhythm | Unity - Variety

https://www.brainyquote.com/authors/andy_warhol

Pop art started with the New York artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg, all of whom drew on popular imagery and were actually part of an international phenomenon. Following the popularity of the Abstract Expressionists, Pop’s reintroduction of identifiable imagery (drawn from mass media and popular culture) was a major shift for the direction of modernism. The subject matter became far from traditional “high art” themes of morality, mythology, and classic history; rather, Pop artists celebrated commonplace objects and people of everyday life, in this way seeking to elevate popular culture to the level of fine art. Perhaps owing to the incorporation of commercial images, Pop art has become one of the most recognizable styles of modern art.
